Santa Catarina, in South Brazil, is a hidden gem known for its gorgeous beaches and mild climate. Long appreciated by the local LGBT community, in recent years it has become a popular gay and lesbian vacation destination.
Praia do Rosa, the only bay in Brazil to be recognized as one of the 38 “Most Beautiful Bays in the World”, is famous for its perfect waves, laid-back atmosphere, rustic-chic guesthouses and great restaurants.
Thanks to the half-moon shape of the bay of Rosa, it is considered a “Disneyland” for surfers- you will always find great surfing there, no matter the direction of the winds or swells. Winter months (June-August) often bring major waves that lure the world’s pro-surfers, but year-round Praia do Rosa it offers great conditions for all levels of ability.
With this fantastic surfing environment also comes an amazing surf coach, Capitão David. His surf school, founded in 1995, is the oldest one in all of Rosa. The Captain, as he is known by his more than 15,000 student/friends, has taught generations of beginners and trained some serious surfers. You will definitely learn more with the Captain than you would at any other surf school!
